UPVC Door Security

High Security Door Cylinders

Lock Bumping

Lock bumping a UPVC door lock can take around 5 seconds for a burglar to gain entry to your property.

The Facts

UAP Door Cylinders
  • A 10 year old child can open a UPVC door with a bump key
  • Bump keys can be bought by anyone from a number of websites in the UK for as little as £2
  • When lock bumping has occurred on your property there is no sign of forced entry or damage to the lock meaning insurance companies are wary in paying out
  • Our UAP cylinders will protect you 100% against lock bumping. We guarantee this for life of the lock
  • All our UAP cylinders we supply and fit come with 5 years parts & labour warranty

The Truth

The truth is that the majority of security cylinders on the market today are not Anti-Snap so thieves will not even attempt to pick or bump the lock, they will move straight onto snapping the cylinder.

Lock Snapping

Lock snapping is a problem that most security door cylinders have failed to address. The principle is easy to enough to understand & apply pressure to the lock cylinder and it will snap.

The problem this leads to is that all of the other security measures that you thought were keeping you safe; the dead-bolts, anti-lift bars etc. are all rendered useless as lock snapping focuses only on the cylinder and exploiting its inherent weaknesses.

Very reliable and honest company turned up on time yesterday and did the job to the standard I required, I did pay a bit more than quoted on the phone but did have a few extra bits done I guess, Verity Palmer

Highly Secure Euro Cylinder

The high security Euro Cylinder is, as you would expect, Anti-Bump, Anti-Pick, Anti-Drill and Zero Lift. However, the feature which really sets this apart is the Anti-Snap feature. The Euro Cylinder will keep you safe from all of these methods of attack and replacing your cylinder is a quick, easy and inexpensive way to purchase peace of mind.

anti-snap cylinder comparison Door Cylinder Benefits

Ordinarily, companies develop locks and cylinders that can withstand lock bumping but there are not many that have thought about or looked at lock snapping. This is because creating an Anti-Snap cylinder is not an easy thing to do. Unfortunately, thieves and miscreants know this and so lock snapping is quickly becoming the number one way that they enter premises.

Recently there has been a wave of lock snapping attacks, so many so that it has caught the attention of the media. As a result of the coverage, many people are aware of this threat but are either unaware of what they can do about it, worried that the solution will cost a small fortune or are blissfully ignorant in the belief that their security lock will automatically be Anti-Snap.

Resist lock snapping and bumping

Your UPVC door is more than likely protected by nothing more than a £5 lock

As seen on BBC

The Anti-Bump, Anti-Pick, Anti-Drill, Zero Lift and Anti-Snap Euro Cylinder is specifically designed to keep you safe. The solution to the lock snapping problem seems simple but is the result of ingenious research and testing. Most lock cylinders snap in such a way that leaves the locking mechanism useless, causing the door to swing right open. An Anti-Snap cylinder is mostly snap resistant but if it were to snap at all, it would snap in a way that kept the locking mechanism, and your safety, intact.

Of course, all of the Euro Cylinders are six pin and each conform to EN1303:2005 British Standard Kitemark, easily one of the most recognised and revered safety hallmarks in the world.
